A Process takes inputs and transforms them into outputs, and may be connected to other Processes in process flows. The work of Work - Facilitation and coordination contributes to This Process.
Create a network of open innovation spaces in Verdun, Montreal. The concept is described here.
Initiative started by SENSORICA in colaboration with David Lametti, MP from Verdun.
David Lametti follows SENSORICA since 2013. In January 2016, after the federal election, David invited SENSORICA members to discuss about an initiative to boost the economy in his riding. The general idea was to create a network of open innovation spaces, build along the OVN SENSORICA model, where the local population can meet with entrepreneurs and local companies to generate new economic initiatives.
David asked sensoricans to gather a group of experts from our local network to facilitate the implementation of this concept.
OuiShare MTL was the first network to be included in this project. Alex Bigot, co-founder of OuiShare MTL and OuiShare global connector was invited by sensoricans at a meeting on the Parliament hill in Ottawa, where David Lametti reaffirmed his commitment to this project.
LivingLabs MTLwas also informed about this initiative and decided to join.
During the Montreal edition of the World Social Forum we met with other local players and discussed the project, in order to complete the initiation and facilitation team.
